Food and drink firms failed to pay a collective £36,000 in wages
Food and drink firms failed to pay a collective £36,000 in wages

Greencore Grocery and 13 other food and drink firms failed to pay 64 employees their full wages, totalling more than £36,000, according to the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).

The convenience food manufacturer owed 22 employees almost a combined £1,700 in wages, it was revealed. Greencore Grocery owed the largest number of staff wages in the food and drink sector, in the government’s list of employers ‘named and shamed’ for failing to pay staff the either the minimum wage or National Living Wage.

Greencore Grocery blamed an “administrative error” for leaving the workers in Hull short-changed.

A Greencore spokeswoman told FoodManufacture.co.uk: “Greencore can confirm that it has been notified by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs [HMRC] that the company made an administrative error when carrying out minor wage deductions from a small number of employees at the group’s facility in Hull.

‘An oversight’

“The company has therefore reimbursed 22 colleagues with an average amount of around £76, and has put measures in place to prevent an oversight of this kind from happening again.”

Other food and drink businesses on the list were: six bakeries, two butchers businesses and two farms.

The food firm with the highest unpaid wage bill was Glover’s Bakery Ltd. It owed staff £11,320.33. See the table below for the full list.

The Food and Drink Federation (FDF) said it fully supported the HMRC wages enforcement scheme.

An FDF spokesman told FoodManufacture.co.uk: “The majority of FDF members already pay above the National Living Wage, paying staff competitively according to market conditions.

“FDF and its members strongly support the work being undertaken in this area by the HMRC’s national minimum wage enforcement team to ensure all companies are adhering to the national minimum wage to create a fair and level playing field, and prevent exploitation within the labour market.”

The union’s view
  • The government needs to crack down further on employers who failed to pay the national minimum wage to some of the most low-paid and vulnerable workers in the country.” – Steve Turner, Unite

£995,233 owed to 15,520 workers

The BEIS’s list of named and shamed employers was its largest ever, the government department said. The full list revealed £995,233 was owed to 15,520 workers, with the biggest offenders being hospitality, retail and hairdressing firms.

HMRC issued penalties totalling about £800,000.

Business minister Margot James said: “Every worker in the UK is entitled to at least the national minimum wage or National Living Wage, and this government will ensure they get it.

“That is why we have named and shamed more than 350 employers who failed to pay the legal minimum, sending the clear message to employers that minimum wage abuses will not go unpunished.”

Other companies in the list included: foodservice supplier Euro Catering Parts Ltd, Debenhams and Rail Vision.

Meanwhile, the Unite union blasted “bad bosses” who underpaid their employees. Employers that don’t pay staff the national minimum wage should face jail, it claimed.

Unite assistant general secretary Steve Turner said: “What the government has announced today [February 16] is welcome, but is only a small step in the right direction and much more is needed.”

Not what it seems !!!!!

Sensationalized Headlines
“Businesses and their Failure to pay living wages???”, “Companies exposed as rouges”
Firstly I apologize for my lack of eloquence and I hope I can clearly express the reality and truth relating to this twisted story line. Sensationalism for the masses aimed at appeasing those on low earnings with little knowledge of the reality behind the facts.
These sensational head lines are not all what it seems read the details its nonsense!
This government and HMRC tactics have been both vicious and totally obscure attacking business shaming under the title of ‘failure to pay living wages’ and then giving disproportionate fines?
Firstly most of the companies listed Do pay the correct legal minimum wage despite the TAG and look after the staff with helpful reasonable gestures that are beyond the needs of the business. No longer can we assist good employees by giving loads, discounted rent, discounted purchases; of which were deducted at net from their wages at their request. This does not affect the legal pay despite the nasty inference!
The HMRC have got it all so very wrong by not writing their ruling, they do not understanding how business run. Small business are not the enemy they are the back bone of industry, most small businesses help people and support employees when they need help most working together to help the business grow.
Not all businesses are villains’ their tactics to grab political headlines and additional finances through disproportional fines will be both destructive to industry and restrictive to all employees well-being in the future,
That is what this is about deductions from wages at the request of the employee when they have either had a loan or purchase from the company. Apparently we cannot make deduction from their salary anymore.
I fully support the control of living wages and the rights of all employees to be paid fairly, but don’t be fooled by the recent headlines of business’s failure to pay minimum wages.
the link is related to two separate issues which the media are unwilling to express the truth and that HMRC have cocked up at the expense of business….jobs are now at risk as this highway robbery from HMRC will kill honest business that have made a clerical error.
Most errors by these companies were due to changes of administration in methods of deductions. Apparently deductions are no longer allowed from the employee wages even if it helps the employee such as loans, staff purchases or rent deductions even if this deduction is made at the request of the employee. This is not cheating anybody they are still paid the living wage and pay tax and National insurance at gross and deductions made at net just like any normal purchase. No employee are forced to have deductions, these same employees have not lost a penny.
Two separate issues that have been linked undeservedly. Watch the job losses!
